Company Description

Why We Like It:
BID's long-term bullish trend of higher lows is still intact. The correction from its early April highs in the $55-56 zone appears to be over. Traders have been buying the dip near $47-48 and its 50-dma. Now BID is on the verge of breaking out past resistance near $50.00 again. The high today was $50.21. I am suggesting we use a trigger at $50.35 to open new bullish positions. If triggered our target is $54.90. We do not want to hold positions over the early May earnings report. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for BID is bullish with an $80 target.

Trigger @ 50.35

Suggested Position: buy BID stock @
